AUSTIN, Texas — KVUE wants to help “Keep Austin Local” by highlighting local businesses, events and people that make Austin special.
On Wednesday, KVUE stopped by Opal Divine’s, a South Austin restaurant and bar that’s been around for 21 years.
Opal Divine’s was started by owner Michael Parker and his wife, Susan. The restaurant is named after Susan’s grandmother, Opal Divine.
The restaurant was set to have a strong 2020 after Interstate 35 construction had been completed. February 2020 was their biggest February ever, and as they were preparing for St. Patrick’s Day, their biggest day of the year, everything shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The restaurant has brunch, lunch and dinner items. On the menu you can find a Philly cheesesteak sandwich, shrimp tacos, burgers, salads and more.

Brunch is available Saturday and Sunday at 11 a.m., and you can get eggs benedict, steak and eggs, and cocktails.
If you haven’t been to Opal Divine’s in a while, they have a new, upscale menu that is a blend of old favorites and new entrees. Their chef came from Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and has upped the menu with steaks, salmon, stuffed chicken and new sides.
You can find Opal Divine’s at 2200 S. I-35 in Austin or online here.
